At first I thought it would be too much of the "hammy" 30's style of overacting prevalent in the early talkies. You know, lots of chirpy talk and overemoting and high girlish voices? However, rendered in a British flavor, which has a bit more reserve to it, it was not too bad for that kind of thing. I got into the pace of it after a few minutes and began to enjoy it. It reminded me a bit of the original Dracula movie; Novello has some decided presence in the Gothic horror line. Perhaps you will see what I mean---anyway, hang on for the end. You won't be disappointed. There's some queer stuff lurking about in the fog.
